This lab focuses on researching games and play to redefine and explore what they can be and how they can be used in concert with art to initiate transformation in our society. Through a greater understanding of art and play, a road to creating a more just, tolerant, and inclusive world can be exposed and that this path can be opened up for others to make discoveries of their own.

Oral History, Storytelling, and Ethnography Lab (OHSEL)
The goal of OHSEL is to support individual faculty and students conduct oral history/ethnography research. Faculty, students, and community patrons can be trained in oral history methods, research and visit West Valley neighborhoods, bring community participants to campus to tell their stories, record and analyze interviews/stories, create archival materials, produce and exhibit documentaries. The lab houses the archives of three projects led by faculty in SHArCS, in particular: Gloria Cuadraz’ work in Litchfield Park, Julie Amparano Garcia’s work on the Lost Boys of Sudan, and Duku Anokye’s work on African American Pioneers of Arizona to name a few. The lab has been recently resurrected and has established goals to host Arizona based Oral History Digital Archives, a Summer Institute to train high school teachers, librarians, and media specialists in the West Valley in oral history and ethnographic methods, and plans to develop Internship/research projects undertaken by students and faculty. OHSEL complements and supports the Oral History Certificate offered in SHARCS.
